Elegance is the word you will use to describe this wonderful, fully restored property built in 1893. Limited to four exquisitely appointed rooms each has a king bed, private bath and some with working fireplaces.

Had an amazing stay for our anniversary at the Elizabeth Leigh Inn. Beautifully decorated Inn that is impeccably clean. Cindy is an incredible innkeeper and her breakfast was delicious. Book your stay at Elizabeth Leigh Inn with confidence.

Cindy and Mike are the most amazing people in the world. Their Inn is beautiful and I was treated like a princess the whole time, every time I visit!

Great Stay at Elizabeth Leigh Inn

The renovated home is large and beautiful--very well decorated and appointed. Our hosts, Cindy and Mike Baer, were gracious and welcoming. Our room was large, lovely and very comfortable. Common area off kitchen has wine, beer, water and soda with snacks. We watched late night TV in the parlor while snacking on ice cream and cookies. Breakfast was tasty and satisfying. Definitely plan to spend some time on the fantastic wrap-around porch which stretches around 3 sides of the home. Grab a book off the book shelves, enjoy the rocking chairs and the breeze and let the world go by. Parking area is convenient. Hendersonville is a lovely little town with lots to do including the nearby Flatrock Playhouse. This is one of the top B&B's we've visited and we will definitely return.

Love this B and B!

I spent three days at the Inn in June 2011 on a combination business/pleasure trip. This is a great place. The grounds are spacious with two patios and a large covered porch where I often met with my associates (or had breakfast). The complementary wine bar was a nice touch, as were the tasty snacks. The rooms and bathrooms were absolutely immaculate - no grungy grout or funky bedspread smells, etc. I did have the opportunity to chat at some length with the innkeepers and proprietors, Cindy and Mike Baer. They were most gracious and hospitable hosts (and very interesting people). Apparently Mike is a successful businessman who travels a bit, so I get the impression the service delivery combines his experience of what travelers want with her hospitality and sense of decorum. I'm not a big breakfast eater, but they were also excellent. The home has a high-speed wireless connection and flat panel cable TV in the bedrooms (at least in mine), so don't let the fact that the home is on the historical registry fool you to thinking that it's low tech. However, the technology does not detract from the "Old South" ambiance of the property... Downtown Hendersonville is walking distance (about 800 yards or so), so its conveniently located to the restaurants and shops. All in all - a great experience.
